Welcome to UT RF Acoustic Microsystems Group!
Our research leverages micro electromechanical systems (MEMS) technologies to enable chip-scale acoustic and cross-domain microsystems ranging from LF (30 kHz) to EHF (300 GHz). Our research aims to demonstrate cutting-edge piezoelectric devices and hybrid systems for signal processing, sensing, and computing applications.
If you are interested in joining our group as a graduate student, please apply to UT ECE and select Electromagnetics & Acoustics Track. If you believe your interests are compatible with mine, you can email me your CV.
If you are interested in joining our group as a postdoc/undergraduate student, please email me your CV.

Ruochen Lu is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin.
His research primarily focuses on developing chip-scale acoustic and electromagnetic components and microsystems for RF applications. His works aim to demonstrate reconfigurable and tunable RF functions using novel MEMS platforms, toward higher operating frequencies and more efficient transduction between the EM and acoustic domains. In addition, he works on ultrasonic transducers and multi-physics hybrid microsystems for signal processing, sensing, and computing applications.
He received the 2022 IEEE MTT-S Microwave Award. Along with his students, he received Best Student Paper Awards at the 2017 IEEE International Frequency Control Symposium (IFCS), 2018 IEEE International Ultrasonics Symposium (IUS), 2022 IEEE International Conference on Microwave Acoustics & Mechanics (IC-MAM), and 2022 IEEE International Ultrasonics Symposium (IUS).
He received the B.E. degree with honors in microelectronics from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, in 2014, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Urbana, IL, USA, in 2017 and 2019, respectively.
